Samsung’s Ballie is a ball-shaped AI companion robot

Ballie is Samsung’s charming and highly capable robotic companion that promises to redefine your smart home experience. Initially showcased as a prototype four years ago, Ballie has evolved into a truly autonomous, AI-powered ball designed to seamlessly integrate into your daily life.

Described by Samsung as “your true AI companion,” Ballie goes beyond the conventional boundaries of smart home devices. This little ball is more than just a gadget; it’s your personal assistant, security guard, and workout buddy all rolled into one. The level of autonomy Ballie exhibits is both impressive and, in some respects, eerily futuristic. One of Ballie’s standout features is its ability to patrol your house autonomously, providing real-time updates on specific areas it inspects. The little robot even captures photos during its rounds, making it a reliable security companion.

Pet owners will appreciate Ballie’s watchful eye on furry friends, with the ability to notify you of any unexpected mischief. Connected to your smart pet feeder, Ballie takes pet care to the next level. Not only can it trigger a refill for your pet’s feeding, but it also entertains them afterward by projecting their favorite videos on the floor.

Beyond its role in home security and pet care, Ballie proves to be a versatile companion in various aspects of your life. It seamlessly integrates with your smart home devices, turning on lights when needed and greeting you with personalized messages. The robot even assists with workouts, reminding you of leg day, projecting workout videos, and counting your reps.

Samsung’s vision with Ballie is to offer users a full-time helper, a companion that learns from your habits to provide personalized and intelligent services. While the official release is slated for later this year, Samsung has kept mum on the pricing details, leaving consumers eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new smart home sidekick.
